ADVISORY BOARD MEMBER

Nick Burns

Nick has been a pioneer in business for over 25 years. He created and led Bluefin Corporate Consulting, a new challenger brand in the sector. He then led the merger of Bluefin with Capita Hartshead to create Capita Employee Benefits which is now the world’s largest UK–owned Employee Benefits organisation.

As we see the acceleration of technological advancement, and generational differences, its time to figure out how humans can not only live with, but prosper, hand in hand with technology across different generations. Us Ai are at the very forefront of that movement.

Nick Burns

“Ai is neither good nor evil. It’s a tool. It’s just a technology for us to use.”

We have a series of pillars that we run our core business around;

  • Maintenance of high ethical standards in external and internal relationships, which we believe is essential to maximum success for both the clients, and our business.
  • All the decisions we make should be based on facts, objectively considered—what we call the fact-founded, thought-through approach to decision making.
  • Our business is kept in adjustment with the forces, and advancements at work in the Ai industry.
  • Our People are judged on the basis of their performance, not on personality, education, or personal traits and skills. We want to create a level-playing field where merit is rewarded. We administer the business with a sense of competitive urgency. That is to say, we keep our eye on the compeitition, but we tend to move our work more in favour of technological advancements in Ai, than what our peers are doing with their businesses. This ensures we’re contemporary for our clients, rather than playing me-too with other companies in the field.

Simplifying Ai.
